To really know a plant, you must understand its family. In this New England Wild Flower Society three part class to be held at Garden in the Woods on Wednesdays, July 5, 12, and 19 from 10 – 2, we will use both microscopic and field investigation to decipher the clues to familial relationships and classifications of New England’s wild plants. You will learn from instructor Carol Govan the basic formulas for plant structure and practice applying them to various families. Bring a bag lunch and a hand lens. $185 for NEWFS members, $218 for nonmembers. Register online at http://www.newfs.org/learn/our-programs/introduction-to-plant-families.
